- VOR 01/VOR 19
- Short & narrow runway.
- Runway slope.
Short runway may restrict maximum landing and take-off weight. Reduced crosswind limits due to narrow runway. There is high ground to the East, South and West of the airfield. Note the hill rising to 1500ft amsl 2 nm to the NW. Prevailing wind is light northerly.
If touchdown is anticipated significantly beyond the 1000ft/300m point, go-around.
- Fly a 3.3Â° approach, using the PAPIs. Note the instrument approach slope of the VOR DME NDB RWY 01 approach is 3Â°.
- Visual circuits should be flown outside the offshore islands.
- Pass abeam Tsoungriaki Island (2.6 nm from touchdown) at 920 ft to achieve a 3.3 degree approach.
- Correct visual perspective will appear high due to 3.3 degree approach, narrow runway and significant up-slope.
- The narrow runway perspective coupled with runway up-slope and a slightly higher than normal rate of descent, leads to a tendency to flare late and an increased risk of a hard landing.
- Boats possible on short final
- Cross the SKP 300Â° R at approx 850 ft to achieve a 3 degree approach.
- Correct visual perspective will appear low due to significant runway down-slope.
- There is a possibility of a disconcerting mirage effect of boats and shipping appearing to be at the far end of the runway.
- Shortly after the touchdown zone the runway down-slope increases significantly.
- If touchdown does not occur prior to the start of the significant down-slope (approx 1500ft/450m from the threshold), go-around.
RUNWAY AND AIRPORT FACILITIES
Undulating runway profile. The first 1500ft/450m of RWY 19 is fairly level, then slopes down rapidly. ATC cannot see the first 1000ft/300m of RWY 19. The runway is not grooved. On both sides of the runway a hard shoulder gives the impression of a more normal width runway. Turns at the threshold of RWY 02 must be made in a clockwise direction.
TAKE-OFF AND DEPARTURE
A visual departure from RWY 01 to the north is available from ATC, on request. It requires the aircraft to reach FL 90 by SKP 338Â°R/15D.

1. Access to Skiathos TMA is restricted only.
2. Aircraft (including Helicopters) flying VFR within Skiathos TMA, should follow the VFR Routes and Altitudes as depicted in this chart unless VFR criteria require otherwise or a special authorisation is obtained from the appropriate ATC unit. to aircraft capable of maintaining two-way radio communication with the appropriate ATS unit.
3. When necessary to deviate from the specified VFR Routes or Altitudes a clearance should be obtained from Skiathos Approach (freq. 126.050 MHz) before entering Skiathos TMA or immediately after departure.To meet special traffic requirements the appropriate ATS unit may assign different VFR routes and altitudes.
4. A continuous watch must be maintained on the appropriate frequency with Skiathos Approach (freq. 126.050 MHz) or Skiathos Tower (freq. 123.250 MHz) when flying the VFR Routes and Altitudes depicted on this chart.
5. To meet special traffic requirements the appropriate ATS unit may assign different VFR routes.
6. Cancellation of IFR flight plan within Skiathos TMA is subject to ATC approval and after such a cancellation the VFR routes and altitudes should again be followed.
7. It is reminded that on VFR routes the responsibility to maintain terrain clearance and to avoid collision with other aircraft and restricted airspace rests with the pilot.
8. All aircraft entering Skiathos TMA should establish contact with Skiathos Approach (freq. 126.050 MHz), report over all compulsory reporting points flying the VFR Routes depicted in this chart.
9. Aircraft flying VFR within Skiathos TMA shall be equipped by a functioning transponder with mode A and C capabilities.
10. Unless otherwise instructed by the appropriate ATS unit, the VFR aircraft shall squawk A 7000.
11. Access to Skiathos CTR is restricted to aircraft capable of maintaining two-way radio communication with Skiathos Tower (freq. 123.250 MHz).
12. To assist Skiathos Airport to arrange a landing sequence of VFR arriving aircraft and facilitate the aerodrome traffic, two visual holding patterns are established southwest and east of Skiathos Airport. Holding on the above patterns should be carried out as described on this VFR Routes and Altitudes Chart.
